  1. A Irish man is stumbling through the woods, totally drunk, when he comes upon a preacher baptizing people in the river. He proceeds to walk into the water and subsequently bumps into the preacher. The preacher turns around and is almost overcome by the smell of alcohol, whereupon he asks the drunk, 'Are you ready to find Jesus?' The drunk shouts, 'Yes, oi am.' So the preacher grabs him and dunks him in the water. He pulls him up and asks the drunk, 'Brother have you found Jesus?' The drunk replies, 'No, oi haven't found Jesus.' The preacher shocked at the answer, dunks him into the water again for a little longer. He again pulls him out of the water and asks again, 'Have you found Jesus me brother?' The drunk again answers, 'No,oi haven't found Jesus.' By this time the preacher is at his wits end and dunks the drunk in the water again --- but this time holds him down for about 30 seconds and when he begins kicking his arms and legs he pulls him up. The preacher again asks the drunk, 'For the love of God have you found Jesus?' The drunk wipes his water soaked eyes and catches his breath and says to the preacher, 'Are you sure this is where he fell in?'
  2. I just got back from camping in the mountains so I'm a little behind on this thread. I've been reading and learning a lot about New York. I hope that when I finally get to visit I can meet up with some of you folks, like all bus drivers you know about places that even people who live in a city all their lives don't know. Anyhow, correct me if I'm wrong here, it seems like Manhattan has a grid system while the surrounding ttowns and cities tend towards a hub and spoke. Yet Manhattan itself seems to act as a gigantic hub for the outlying units. So we have public transport in Manhattan radiating out to major destinations where a hub and spoke system serves those localities. Tis is what I'm getting from reading this thread and others. How right am I?
  3. East Los Angeles did go nuts. There they had a double whammy, Mexico beat France that morning then the Lakers in the evening, it was crazy. The buses were detoured along Whittier boulevard from Eastern Avenue to Atlantic Avenue, Whittier Boulevard runs East/West but the Supervisors had to continually revise the detours as the festivities kept moving further north and south of those locations. Revelers began throwing random objects and a bus became the target, fortunately there were no injuries to the operators but it got really edgy for a while. There were fireworks going off and I heard a report of gunshots but I don't know if there were any for sure. It was just a wild night.
  4. I've never been to New York so please excuse me if this question sounds naive. Is the Transit system in NY based on a Hub and Spoke system or is it a grid system? I had never seen a grid system until I came to Los Angeles so I was wondering if New York has the same thing.
  5. Those are cool pic's 2easy. The Gold line extension did open in May of this year and they are working on extending it to the North East of LA. They do need to be working more on light rail in LA. In the past they've been wanting to go underground everywhere.
  6. What does it mean if you have a woman lying in your bed, gasping for breath and calling out your name? It means you didn't hold the pillow down long enough.
  7. It was their 20th wedding anniversary. They were lying in bed when she feels his fingers run down her back. She hadn't had this much attention in years. Then his hands go down her front, then along her thighs, then he stops. She said "Why did you stop?" He answered; "I found the remote."
  8. There is one thing i have to say first; America did not, will not, could not, play "Britain" Britain does not have a team in the world cup. America played England. I am originally from Wales, one of the historic nations that comprise the political entity known as Britain. Wales was not in the world cup. I support and root for America and I was pleased as punch that we got a draw over the english. In Scotland, a group has made a popular song, you can find it on You Tube, called "Anyone but England" I am from Britain but I am not English, I was born and raised there and all my ancestors as far back as I know all came from that island but I couldn't even speak english until I was around 11 years old. The draw America had was superb, this time being close doesget a cigar. Doesn't matter that the American goal was a fluke. The fact is that England could not retake the lead. In keeping that goal against England was the glory. Tim Howard has become my hero. Now for Slovania on Friday, there seems no reason why America should not get into the second round.
  9. Now that caught my eye and my attention. But mostly my eye.

  11. Hi folks. I work for L A Metro, been with them about 18 years. Before that I was a Bus Driver in South Wales for around twenty years. I'm looking forward to getting to know Bus operators from around the states and maybe sharing some of our stories. Best Wishes.........Ianto
